Clean, comfortable and welcoming

If I'm honest, I had been looking for something closer to downtown and only widened the search because nothing decent was forthcoming. What a piece of good fortune!
The property is every bit as clean and tidy as it looks in the listing. It is also nicely equipped and tastefully finished, feeling like a home where some rental properties just feel like business premises. The helpful documentation available in the property included bus timetables, brochures for many attractions and menus for local restaurants. The Arlington Heights area is predominantly residential and quiet, and always felt safe to walk around both during the day and in the evening. Getting into Boston using a combination of bus and Red line proved to be no problem, and with a 7 day MBTA pass at $15, getting around is easy and cheap.
I can't speak too highly of the owners; communication was promptly answered, the booking process was simple, and a nice touch was that the price on the website was the total price, Victor could not have been more helpful; meeting us as we got off the bus, guiding us to the property and showing us around. After a transatlantic flight, arriving to a well-stocked refrigerator was particularly welcome. It was also nice that the security deposit had been refunded before we even got home.
I hope we will visit Boston again sometime, and if we do, and if the property is available, there is no question of where we want to stay!
Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having you in our home and thank you for taking great care of it while you were there. We are so glad you felt right at home and that we were able to accommodate all your needs.
We look forward to having again in the future.
